USDA to Establish New NASS Center

Thu, 14 Oct 2010 16:56:12 CDT

As part of the agency's efforts to streamline operations and better serve the statistical needs of agriculture and rural America, USDA plans to open a centralized data collection and processing center near St. Louis, Missouri. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack says the new center is expected to bring approximately 100 full-time and 300 part-time jobs to the St. Louis area.

The new NASS National Operations Center is expected to open in late 2011 and it will be located at the Charles F. Prevedel Federal Building, the site of a former U.S. Army federal records center. U.S. General Services Administration plans to invest 35-million dollars into improvements over the next five years.

Vilsack says, this new, centrally located facility will help standardize and streamline the survey operations conducted by USDA around the country, and help ensure that we collect the best and most useful data about agriculture. NASS's 46 field offices will maintain viable operations, continuing to work with state governments, industry, and other partners to serve the data needs of agriculture and rural America.
